Chiropractor-Dr Jeremy Andrews

Dr Jeremy is a doctor of Chiropractic and Director of West Chiropractic.

He had an interest in biology, mechanics at school as well as being a keen sportsman. This led to a degree in Human Musculoskeletal Science at the University of Bristol.

Unlike most Chiropractors he hadn’t heard much about Chiropractic as a kid, but that soon changed following a challenging back injury sustained whilst at Bristol. He experienced first-hand how debilitating back pain can be, not being able to get out of bed for 2 days shortly before his finals, and he struggled to find a suitable treatment.

Dr Jeremy was on a cycle ride later in the year and was chatting with a Chiropractor about his frustrations at the lack of knowledge and treatment for debilitating back pain. The Chiropractor offered for Jeremy to observe him several times and it was after these observations that he realised there was more to health than just taking medications and painkillers.

Following this experience, Jeremy enrolled at the AECC and spent 4 years in Bournemouth developing his skills and gaining his Doctor of Chiropractic.

Dr Jeremy believes that everyone should live their best self and does everything he can to make that happen for all of his clients at West Chiropractic.

Outside of the clinic, Dr Jeremy enjoys training for triathlons; completing an Ironman in 2016. He is now turning his attention to Crossfit competitions and spending time with his fiancée, Charlotte.

Chiropractor-Dr Antonio Vernashci

Ever since I was a young child I have lived an active lifestyle and can thank my parents for entering me into many different sporting teams at such a young age. My father says that as a baby I was kicking footballs before I was able to walk! Growing up I naturally gained a passion for health and physical fitness with an ultimate desire to play football.

After gaining my A-Levels I was fortunate enough to be offered an athletic scholarship in the USA where I was able to express my abilities as an athlete and gain a BSc degree in Kinesiology from California State University, Fullerton. This experience was invaluable for me and shortly after graduating I was able to sign a professional contract to play for the Anaheim Bolts. Alongside this, I also qualified as a personal trainer with the International Sports Science Association (ISSA).

My time in America taught me many lifelong lessons and whilst both playing and working with numerous professional and semi-professional sports teams, unfortunately I became exposed to many sports injuries.

This is where I was able to find chiropractic as my life’s purpose. I had previously heard of it performing wonders for my parents but never really understood how it worked. It was having treatment from a chiropractor after multiple injuries, and also witnessing and hearing about teammates with injuries who were also making miraculous recoveries that I decided I wanted to learn more. I researched more into it and not long after I decided to return to the UK where I began my studies at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth.

Whilst studying I attended many chiropractic seminars and spoke to numerous chiropractors, I was amazed at the amount of miracle recovery stories due to chiropractic care and could not wait to start helping others in such a holistic way. I now love transforming people’s lives for the better on a daily basis.

Audrey grew up in south of France bathed by sun and fresh air. Her initial graduation and professional experience was in photography, spending memorable years in a newspaper.

Meeting people from different backgrounds has taught her a lot and had an impact on her life. After a turnaround, she decided to make a fresh start and come to the UK. She believes that a tiny thing or gesture of kindness is the best option to make somebody feel at ease, feeling warm and welcoming. When she is not at work, she enjoys the outside, hiking in particular but if the weather doesn’t allow it, then being with friends and family in front of a comfort meal and a glass of wine is the best option to keep warmth through the winter.
